A New Issue of Postage Stamps

On the occasion of the International Day of Persons with Disabilities, 3 December, the Post of Serbia launched a commemorative postage stamp dedicated to this day.

The International Day of Persons with Disabilities was established in 1992 when the UN General Assembly adopted the resolution by which all the countries are invited to mark this day with the aim to improve and enable to persons with disabilities equal practice of human rights and equal participation in society.

This year the International Day of Persons with Disabilities is marked by a graphic slogan Ј=DNAKI (E=QUAL). The slogan is integrated into the motif of the stamp by Jakša Vlahović, an academic graphic artist of WU Srbijamarka, while the expert cooperation in the realization of the philatelistic issue was provided by the Ministry of Labour, Employment, Veteran and Social Affairs of the Government of the Republic of Serbia.

The issue contains the commemorative postage stamp with nominal value of 23 dinars, the First Day cover (FDC) and a commemorative seal. The stamp was printed in the circulation of 25,000 copies. In the spirit of the recognizable socially responsible practice, the Post of Serbia has in this way joined the celebration of the International Day of Persons with Disabilities, but it also emphasizes that in its business it showcases a special susceptibility for this sensitive group of citizens, through raising the availability of services, as well as hiring near 400 employees with disabilities which are equal and useful members of the Postal team.
